'Israel' to officially send air warning systems to Ukraine
Ukraine's Ambassador to "Israel" says the systems are expected to be delivered soon.
Ukraine's Ambassador to "Israel" announced on Friday that "Tel Aviv" will officially transfer advanced missile and drone alert systems.
"Work on transfer of Israeli technologies related to intelligent missile and drone warning continues. This technology is being officially transferred by the Israeli side. I think we will receive it completely in a little while," said Ambassador Yevgen Korniychuk as quoted by Ukrainian media outlet Ukrinform.

The deal was reportedly reached in October last year during a meeting between former Israeli Prime Minister Yair Lapid and Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba.
Last October, the former Israeli occupation's Security Minister Benny Gantz told European Ambassadors during a briefing that "Israel will not deliver weapon systems to Ukraine."
"Our policy regarding Ukraine will not change - we will continue to support and stand with the West, but we will not provide weapon systems," he said then.
Gantz disclosed that "Israel" had offered aid to Ukraine by helping Kiev develop an early warning system that would warn the Ukrainian armed forces of incoming shelling or airstrikes.
Despite the claim, Israeli media reported in September that Israeli arms manufacturer is supplying the anti-UAV systems to Ukraine via Poland and noted that the sales were conducted through Warsaw to circumvent "Tel Aviv's" refusal to sell advanced arms to Ukraine.
